The new Google Pixel 7a's full retail price is $499 / £449 / AU$749, which is a slight bump up in price versus the previous iteration. There are, however, a few key upgrades under the hood - particularly the new Tensor 2 chip and a 64MP camera - that look to justify the slightly higher asking price at launch. On top of this, there are some superb budget-friendly promotions that are cutting that price tag right down to size, including AT&T offering the device for just $2 per month on an unlimited data plan and some superb cheap tariffs in the UK.

For those who want to know more about the Google Pixel 7a, we've included a full overview of the device, its upgrades, and its specs just below today's Google Pixel 7a deals. You can also head on over to our main Google Pixel 7a review for an exhaustive look at the device.

Google Pixel 7a: free with unlimited plan, plus free tablet and cheaper Pixel Watch at Verizon
Verizon's been consistently offering the Pixel 7a for free alongside a new unlimited data line and it remains one of the strongest options right now at the carrier for Android fans on a budget. This deal's thunder has been stolen slightly by the fact that the newer Google Pixel 8 has also been given away for free under similar terms recently - although you will need one of the pricier unlimited plans to claim it. The Pixel 7a in comparison can be bundled up with one of the more basic unlimited plans, which still makes it a strong option. Alongside the deal on the phone itself, Verizon is also offering additional discounts on accessories - a free Samsung tablet worth $550 and $220 off a Pixel Watch 2. Note, however, that you do need to pay for additional device cellular lines separately.

Google Pixel 7a: new features and overview

  • Tensor 2 chip (same as the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro)
  • 64MP camera
  • Better low-light photography
  • New long exposure mode
Google Pixel 7a specs

Display: 6.1-inch 90Hz Full HD+ OLED
Chip: Google Tensor 2
RAM: 8GB
Capacity: 128GB
Camera: 64MP wide, 13MP ultra-wide, 13MP selfie
Software: Android 13

The Pixel 7a is outwardly very similar to the previous iteration (like the Pixel 7), with the majority of improvements coming in the form of internal hardware upgrades. 

On the surface, the device still comes in a 6.1-inch form factor and features a 90hz display - which lags behind the 120Hz display of the Pixel 7 and similarly priced Samsung Galaxy A54 5G. For context, it's still the smallest device in the current line-up, with the Pixel 7  coming in at 6.3 inches and the Pixel 7 Pro at 6.7 inches.

The first significant upgrade for the Pixel 7a comes in the form of its back camera's sensor, which has been improved from 12MP to a whopping 64MP. The sensor here hasn't just been bumped up in terms of overall resolution, but it's a bigger sensor in terms of physical size, which brings improvements to low-light shooting.

Alongside physical improvements to the camera hardware, the Pixel 7a also features all the fantastic software features that greatly aid the mobile photography experience on Pixel devices - Magic Eraser, Photo Unblur, and an extended exposure mode, which is a new addition for A series devices.

Next up on the list of improvements is the Tensor 2 chip featured inside the Pixel 7a. This processor is arguably the headline feature for the Pixel 7a as it's the same chip as the one featured in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. In short, you're getting significant power under the hood with the Pixel 7a versus the similarly priced competition (like the Galaxy A54 5G, for example). 

However, all that power does come with a downside with the Google Pixel 7a's mediocre battery life. During our testing, we found that the device drained its battery quickly during intensive tasks, so carrying a backup charger is recommended for gaming, attending video calls, or utilizing power-hungry apps heavily throughout the day. Compounding the weak battery life is the Pixel 7a's somewhat sluggish charging speed, which lags behind the latest mid-range devices from Samsung and Motorola.

Finishing up our overview with software - the Pixel 7a Runs on Google's own clean version of Android 13- a distinct advantage for those who want to avoid the usual bloatware found on third-party devices. As with all Pixel devices, you get a guaranteed three years of software updates, which should see you through to the next upgrade (it's nothing on Apple's guaranteed six years of updates, however).
